Hand In Hand


Hand in hand we walk in starlight
living in the dreams that we do create
with the promises of the silver moon
where we catch the secrets of the night
in word accords of old love songs
that leaves a melody in my hart
which echoes from your lips,

bringing with it a longing for things past
and then we philosophise
on the tomorrow that is still to come
and the injustices of life
while we hope for a better day
where dreams do still come true
beyond the rising horizon
and my head finds its resting place in your arms.

Then I see a different side of you
when you do show a little more vulnerability
and my love grows deeper
when your soul lays bear in front of me.

We do reflect on the past,
reminisce on a better new year
and then I do want to believe you
when you tell me that love
will make our dreams come true
and that the sun will shine
brighter on every new tomorrow

and when you take my hand into yours
where it belongs,
the day cannot wait but the future still can
while we walk into the morning,
into the yellow sun
that is now much brighter
than the moons of any yesterday.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
